Subject: What a show! Brent's orginal tune debut etc.
Somebody reviewed the U.C.L.A. show from this year, which I also recorded; and said he thought that was the best Stella Blue. So I said over there, indeed it was a good one, but suggested three others, one of which is this one! Besides Stella Blue and the brand new Brent tune "Easy to Love You", this was a terrific performance!
The "Not Fade Away" was considerably different than at Red Rocks, and the "Improvisation", (I refuse to say "Space", since there is no air in space, therefore no sound), was very mellow. I can still picture it well in my mind in color, being up front at this general admission concert; since that's what our tickets said which were originally intended for Red Rocks, but since they had to move because of the rain here to McNichols, they had left the seats on the floor, so it was a mad dash to get a a chair. All the tunes were well played!
Subject: A good quality recording
Terrapin is nice, and goes right into a great Playing in the Band. The item called "Space" here is misnamed; It's a moderately interesting free-form improvisational jam featuring Jerry and Phil. The Stella Blue here is very good, both vocals and masterful guitar--definately worth downloading. Which you can still do since this is not a soundboard.
But it is a very good quality audience recording, close to soundboard. It gets better as it goes along, so don't judge the quality by the first few songs.
vary good Aud recording
